Finnish symphonic metal outfit Nightwish has announced that the band has decided to postpone recording due to lead singer Anette Olzon's recent injury, in which she broke some of her ribs. A message from Olzon reads as follows:

"Today me, Ewo (Pohjola, Nightwish Manager) and Tuomas (Holopainen, Nightwish leader/keyboardist) decided that its better if I rest the whole month and get in shape so I can do the vocals super good, and have booked my vocal recordings from April 4th instead, in another studio in Finland. This is really good cause no one will be happy if the album doesn't sound perfect. And we don't have any hurry since the album has plenty of time to get mastered and ready still.

"So I┬┤ll rest and rest and hopefully soon be able to move a bit more. I have now been lying down for a week and even if I cant do anything it is of course quite boring.

"Yesterday something happened that might have been good. I lied down and just turned to the right and it 'popped' really loud from the ribs and I could feel the bones move. After that I feel I can breathe a bit easier so maybe the bones were 'put in their places' and can start to heal now. I really do hope so!"
